Fuchsia has always been one of my favorite colors. It’s a more sophisticated hue of pink, a bit more punk and a little less girly, plus it works in all seasons. And here is my new fuchsia-infused dream summer outfit…

Summer Style

28 Jun

One of my absolute favorite types of outfits to wear is a breezy dress with flat sandals and a cross-body bag. Easy, comfortable and with a million opportunities for variation. I love this dress by Joie because the silhouette is forgiving yet sexy and paired with clogs it is on trend yet natural, not at all as if you’re trying too hard. I can see the whole outfit paired with a topknot.

Hello Weekend!

11 Jun

My husband and I have dinner plans tonight with our good friends from New York. I’m really excited to see them as we missed our annual New Years eve trip together this past year and we are all looking forward to meeting up and planning for 2011. We were thinking Guatemala…but I digress.

What I really should talk about is what I’ll be wearing tonight, a black Twelfth St. by Cynthia Vincent Dress with shoulder detailing that looks not too far off from this one. Even though it’s almost officially summer, I still love wearing all black and I love to contrast feminine details with more edgy and/or earthy accessories.
